|Hi, thanks in advance for help. Oh and english is not my first language so apologize for that.|
So here is my situation: My brother gave me his old pc and it was crawling with malware. It has two disks - System (C:) and Data (D:). I used Malwarebytes's Antimalware to get rid of them. Then I formated C: and installed fresh new Windows 7.
The problem is, the internet doesn't work, I use ethernet cable. It tries to connect at first, but the only result is yellow exclamation mark in the corner. The packets are only sent, but not received. The internet is working fine on other two pc's (XP and Win 7)
So here is what I tried.
- TCP/IP set on auto
- Disabling Firewall
- Trying different version of Windows
- Reinstalling TCP/IP protocols
- ipconfig /all shows no DNS gates
After I did some research I think it might be winsock error.
msinfo32 -> winsock has only 8 parts.
I tried allsorts of winsock reset with no success.
I think I covered all.
Do you think it might be cause by some remnants of malware on Data disk (D:) ?
Or any idea how to fix it?
